There is no carrier split on a 9". Your ring gear is probably hitting around the pilot Brg? You may have to do a little grinding to get clearance. Be cautious as you only want to take whats needed because that is a area that can break.

Some of the performance gear sets already have the inside edge of the ring gear ground so you don't have that problem.

You still read the pattern the same,you just won't get that perfect swipe in the pattern. If the drive is high and the coast is low or visa versa,you would do a pinion depth change and adjust backlash as needed. Normally If you get the pattern centered on the coast and drive without running off the edges you will be fine.

Its actually pretty easy to set up a used gear set. and its not like using used lifters. I dont see and 430 ratio's for that price,but that would be a good deal if there was.

31fordcoupe I think it's pretty consistent though that the smaller bearing is used for the 28 spline and the larger bearing is used for the 31 spline. I will mic it before ordering. Thanks.

lmsport You may need to know which carrier bearing you have to get the correct kit.

31fordcoupe Thanx much prostreet. I will bid on the second set then. I also found a Timken rebuild kit on ebay for about $80. So those gears and that rebuild kit and I should be on my way (need axle bearings as well).

I really appreaciate all of your help on this (and every other question you have answered on here for me).

Irelands child Why buy used (problems?) when Summit has a set of 4.33's for $160 + $12 shipping or another set for $206 or a third for $266 - all Richmond's. No clue without spending more time with the specs what the differences are, but a used R&P plus the bearings and seals plus labor for something that might have been flogged - hard - just isn't worth the aggravation. I can understand trying to save a few bucks, but not in the engine/driveline where you need as much reliability as you can get. And 50-100 bucks - not worth the possible grief and pain to suffer someone elses problems.

OK - now I'll put my soapbox away and watch the NA$CAR Nationwide race

prostreet6t9 If you get the Richmond set they may make a little noise. But thats not a bad buy.
10-24-2009 01:41 PM
prostreet6t9 Yes! But it's the second one listed. Not on the backside,the backside cut is just for saving weight.You see how the point is rounded off at the bottom of ring gear the tooth? The first listing is a PRO gear set. I'm thinking you dont need a PRO set. That Pro set looks pretty rough anyway.
